Unable to remove memory stick from card reader

August 2016


A memory stick is stuck in the cardreader of my laptop. How to remove it ?


  • Slide a thin cardboard about 5-6cm long and 2cm wide on the top of the card.
  • Slide a thin screwdriver below the card in the same way and delicately apply some pressure (upwards).
  • The memory card will slide out as by majic.

Thanks to eriiic for this tip.
